At Penn Foster Career School's Medical Billing and Coding Program, you'll learn how to manage records and file claims, prepare insurance forms, and handle billing for clinics, doctors' offices, or private billing services. Here are a few qualities that efficient medical billers and coders have in common:
- Organized: Billers and coders need to keep confidential health forms in the right place.
- Honest: Insurance companies, doctors, and patients trust you to handle billing.
- Dependable: Patients and companies rely on you to send them the right information on time.
- Detail oriented: It's important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
I really like the way [Penn Foster] set up the program. The progression is really good, and they are always encouraging you. I’m very, very pleased with the medical coders at Penn Foster.
